Sordo: The Silent War
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Carlos M. Jara
Label: MovieScore Media
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 13 September 2019

MovieScore Media release the soundtrack to Alfonso Cortés-Cavanillas’s Sordo: The Silent War with music by Carlos Martín Jara. The movie takes place in Spain, 1944, where a local guerilla group wants to help the resistance's cause by destroying the infrastructure of the regime and overthrow General Franco. After an attack on a bridge, only two members of the group survive and must escape with an obsessed Captain and a Russian mercenary girl in tow...

Carlos M. Jara's score for Sordo is one that is hard not to fall head over heels for from the very first play through. It opens with 'Sordo' a John Barry-esque track that soon encroaches into James Horner territory.

'Rosa's Theme' is the heart of the score, presenting one of the album's most beautiful and subtle themes, delivered in the style of Ennio Morricone (most notably his work on Cinema Paradiso. 'Bosch and the Wolf' represents another sumptuous track. The flute and strings here deliver a calming and soul searching piece of music.

Jara delivers memorable theme after memorable theme, with other highlights including 'Deaf in the Night'; 'Rosa and Anselmo'; 'Meeting'; the ethereal 'Broken Inside'; 'Friend'; and 'Do Not Look, Rosa'. All of these you'll want to add to your favourites playlist.

A beautiful original score that's well worth adding to your music library.
